Asus presents a new Intel motherboard based on the NVIDIA nForce 680i LT SLI chipset. The Asus P5NT WS supports Intel's latest processors and with support for NVIDIA's Quadro it's designed for SOHO and power users.
New PCI-X Structure for More Efficiency
The PCI-X Structure of the P5NT WS motherboard is a newer, higher speed version of the conventional PCI standard. It is also fully hardware and software backward compatible to previous generations of PCI. This new standard will keep pace with upcoming advances in high-bandwidth business-critical applications, allowing users to keep in touch with technologies such as Fibre Channel, RAID, networking, InfiniBand™ Architecture, SCSI, and iSCSI.
High Quality Solid State Capacitors
The ASUS P5NT WS is also fitted with solid state capacitors and a conductive polymer that creates the perfect system stability. These high quality materials also help ensure that the motherboard will have a longer product lifetime.
Effective Heat-pipe Thermal Solution
The innovative Heat-pipe Thermal design of the P5NT WS motherboard effectively directs the heat generated by the chipsets to the heatsink near the back IO ports – where it can be dissipated by existing airflow from the CPU fan or optional fans. This unique Heat-pipe design highlights how fanless designs effectively curb the problem of chipset fans breaking down.
Furthermore, it provides options for users to install a side-flow fan or a passive cooler. The Heat-pipe design is the most reliable fanless thermal solution to date.
